Sony Planning to Get Into Mobile Games With New Acquisition
PlayStation maker Sony today announced that it intends to begin producing mobile games designed for iPhone and Android devices through the acquisition of Savage Game Studios. Savage Game Studios founders have worked for companies that include Rovio, Zynga, and Wargaming, and Sony says they have "many years of experience making some of the most popular mobile games."
Sony says that its mobile gaming efforts will not take away from its work on console gaming, and will be "additive," providing new ways for people to engage with PlayStation content.
Our mobile gaming efforts will be similarly additive, providing more ways for more people to engage with our content, and striving to reach new audiences unfamiliar with PlayStation and our games. Savage Game Studios is joining a newly created PlayStation Studios Mobile Division, which will operate independently from our console development and focus on innovative, on-the-go experiences based on new and existing PlayStation IP.
Savage Game Studios is joining a new PlayStation Studios Mobile Division that is set to operate separately of the console team. There's no word as of yet what the PlayStation Studios Mobile Division will work on first, but there's already a new "unannounced AAA mobile live service action game" in development.

Apple says iOS 16.4 is coming in the spring, which began this week. In his Sunday newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said the update should be released "in the next three weeks or so," meaning a public release is likely in late March or early April.
iOS 16.4 remains in beta testing and introduces a handful of new features and changes for the iPhone. Below, we have recapped five new features ...
A first-generation iPhone still sealed inside its box sold for $54,904 at auction, which is more than $54,000 over the original $599 price tag of the device when it was released in 2007.
The original iPhone was put up for sale by RR Auction on behalf of a former Apple employee who purchased it back when it first came out. Back in February, an original, sealed iPhone sold for over $63,000,...
The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.
Apple says that Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out the ambient noise around you, making for clearer phone calls where you can better hear the person you're chatting with and vice versa.
While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro.
If you are still using an iPhone 12 Pro and are considering upgrading to the iPhone 15 Pro when it launches later this year, we have put together a...

I'd call that a very serious attempt to enter the gaming market. It's just not the AAA gaming market, and the AAA market is the only thing some people see.
This is what Sony is now doing. They want that sweet IAP money.
Ahh one can dream.
Also the M chips being dominant is temporary. The same as how when PowerPC was a thing it's dominance over Intel was temporary. As soon as other manufacturers catch up it won't be anything special, as much as people here refuse to understand or believe basic business practice.
As for AAA games, Apples not a game company. They'd be truely awful at it as they have precisely zero knowledge or experience of game development, or it's customers. You can get away with selling a computer or phone for thouands. Apple charging $200 for a game though? Nah. Leave it to the people who know what they are doing. Apple Arcade should be enough of an indicator of how awful Apple would be with gaming.
